About / Bio
Ellen is passionate in supporting women and their partners/family in any way they need. An informed choice made from the heart is the right choice. No matter what your choice, Ellen will be there to support you.

Ellen is flexible, warm, honest and loves supporting families during the emotional roller-coaster ride that pregnancy, birth and those early months are. She has 2 children of her own and the emotional changes starting in pregnancy took her by surprise. That's when she decided to become a doula, to support women (practically and emotionally) on their journey.
Testimonial
"I don't know how we could have done it, without you!" Jan 2013



"How do other people do this without a doula?" July 2012



Ellen was a support person for her sister, who delivered a breech baby naturally in her native Holland in 1995, before she trained as a doula.



Ellen has supported couples with various birth outcomes (natural births, induction, epidural, assisted deliveries) in private and public hospitals, birthing centre and at home.
Services Offered
The doula support Ellen provides is flexible and adapted to your needs. Practical and emotional support given in the comfort of your own home.



The following options are available for birthing doula services:

* prenatal visits (birth wishes & choices) a minimum of two, more if required/ requested

* unlimited email or phone contact

* continuous practical and emotional support during the birth of your baby

* postnatal visits (debrief birth, settling and feeding)

* available 24/7 from 2 weeks before due date till your baby is born



Ellen is also a postnatal doula, providing friendly, unbiased support in the comfort of your home. She can assist you to find the parent within you. New parents don't always have their friends and family close by to support them through this massive change.



Ellen can visit you, so you can recharge your batteries, and to discuss with you practical tips to make life somewhat less demanding with a little baby.
Other Skills
* Pre- and postnatal massage (qualified physiotherapist)

* Library with many birth and parenting books/ DVDs
